Here I Am hit it spot on. The main value of the Apocrypha is that is an interesting "historical" anthology between the OT and NT. I feel it is worthwhile for Christians to read as long as it is taken in context:That being, it is not God-Breathed Doctrine. If one keeps that in mind, there are some interesting things in there, some good examples of classic Hebrew writing styles, examples of what today we call "Morality Tales". As long as one is rooted and grounded in the 66 books that make up the Holy Bible I feel it a Christian should read it at least once. My 2 cents. Blessings.
